I sincerely thought Daylight Saving Time started this weekend and I’d have an extra hour to think of anything at all. I know, me, of all people, to be foiled by a calendar event. I mean, you say it could happen to anyone (go ahead; I’m not listening), but I am someone who as a kid tried my best to figure a way to reconfigure the calendar so it would be more regularized and also Halloween would always be a weekend night, and submitted it to the community science fair, where I believe I got the coveted “Oh, uh, well, that’s quite different of you” award. I shouldn’t be making amateur mistakes like this.

But also the start of daylight saving time means losing an hour because we skip forward
Right but since I set these things to post before 1 am Universal Time, the switch to Daylight Saving Time means I don’t have to have them ready until 8 pm Eastern, whereas now I have to have them for 7 pm Eastern, and for how many of these are just a one-liner you’d think I could have that done weeks ahead of time but somehow I don’t.
It’s no crime to miss “It’s Daylight Savings Time,Charlie Brown” so don’t feel so bad.
That one’s got a bad reputation but the scene where Linus explains the difference between sidereal and mean tropical years is some of the best pop mensuration you’ll ever see.
